Big beautiful bull male Sakor comes to us as a result of human-elephant conflict. He was minding his own business in his very own corner of forest when the land he was roaming was sold as a concession for sugar cane. This yummy treat quickly became Sakor’s favorite food and he began eating every bit he came across! You can imagine that didn’t go over very well for the villagers who were trying to make an income off of this plantation and they very soon called us and asked us to take him away. Sakor is a perfect candidate for release back into the wild. He is young, strong, and stubborn. Unfortunately for him, Cambodia’s forests are shrinking at an ever increasing rate. At this time there is nowhere safe for him to return. It is devastating that he will most likely spend the rest of his life in our care because of habitat loss. This phenomenon is happening throughout the world at an alarming pace. Learn more about what we are doing to protect Cambodia’s forests and how you can join the fight on our website.
